Louis is the bad boy on Suits, as Designated Survivor is set for impeachment
April 18th, 2018 under ABC, Suits. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 9p on USA Network, it has been the moment we have been waiting for since the first episode of Suits. Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) becomes the bad boy that he has been suppressing his whole life. The episode starts off with Sheila’s (Rachael Harris) fiance’ confronting him and Louis does everything in his power not tell him that he has been having an affair with the woman he is about to marry. When he gets back to his office Katrina (Amanda Schull) tells him she has a plan to get back at him. A lawsuit that will bring his rival down to size. Will he get his revenge on the man that is about the marry the woman he loves?

While he is dealing with that, Donna (Sarah Rafferty) has her own problems. The man who owns the building they rent their offices wants to kick them out. She does not want to tell Harvey (Gabriel Macht) because he is still getting over their kiss, so she asks Rachel (Meghan Markle) to help her save their firm’s offices. Will they be able to do it?

If that is not enough the judge, who saved Mike’s (Patrick J Adams) butt, asks him to save her butt. He feels he has no choice, even though the stakes are high if he does it. He gets Harvey to help him out and the case is much harder than either one expected.

All of this leads into next week’s 2-hour season finale where we say goodbye to the future Mrs. Prince Harry and her TV husband. At least we are assuming Rachel and Mike are getting married.

Then at 10p but over on ABC, Michael J Fox joins Designated Survivor for the rest of the season. When President Kirkman’s (Kiefer Sutherland) psychiatrist’s tapes of POTUS’s sessions are accidentally released to the public, the cabinet holds a meeting to impeach him. They feel that he is not mentally fit to stay in office because he is dealing with PTSD from being the designated survivor and suddenly losing his wife in a car crash. They feel they have the case for the 25th amendment, so they hired the best lawyer (Fox) to plead it. While Fox is defending them, Kirkman is defending himself to the American people. Will the people vote to keep him in office or will the cabinet get their way?

All I can say is when is life going to imitate art already?

The Crossing is the must watch Sci Fi show of the season!
April 2nd, 2018 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]


ABC has needed a good Sci-Fi show for a while now and The Crossing is it. Tonight at 10p, you will see why I love it so much.

Sheriff Jude Ellis (Steve Zahn) has been informed that a body washed up in his small town and they want him to look into the mysterious person. When he gets there, he discovers it is a little girl, Leah (Bailey Skodje), and he breathes life into her lifeless body. Just when he thinks he has saved the day, his deputy, Nestor Rosario (Rick Gomez), tells him to look. That is because there are hundreds of bodies floating in the water towards them.

Of the nearly 500 bodies, 47 of them survived and they have a secret. They are from over 150 years in future and they are here to prevent their future. A future full of war and disease. If that is not hard enough to believe, then how about they are not first people to come from their time to our time. How have the past visitors embedded themselves into our time?

Then there are some key questions like why are they here? Why now? Why this place? What do they want? How bad is their future? Those questions will be answered in future episodes as they try to assimilate into our time. Well, as much as they can because Department of Homeland Security is forcing them to live in a camp for our protection and to study them.

Good thing not all of them were captured. Reece (Natalie Martinez) was able to get away from the others. The only problem is her daughter, Leah, was captured with the rest of them and she wants her back. She will work with the sheriff to find her daughter since the DHS has taken over the investigation of the mysterious people. During their search, she will reveal how much more evolved they are in the future as compared to now.

There are so many questions left to be answered. If you love a good Sci-Fi thriller, then you are going to love this show as much as I do. It is a slow suspenseful mystery, that leaves you on the edge of your seat. Something all of us crave every now and again.

Alex, Inc’s Elisha Henig is going to be a huge star
March 28th, 2018 under ABC, Zach Braff. [ Comments: none ]


Alex, Inc begins broadcasting on ABC tonight at 8:30p and you are going to be podcasting about this show tomorrow.

Alex (Zach Braff) has the perfect job at a radio station, a beautiful wife (Tiya Sircar), 2 great kids Ben (Elisha Henig) and Soraya (Audyssie James), so you could say he is it all. One day, he realizes his job is not for him, so he quits. He decides to start his own podcast company with his cousin Eddie (Michael Imperioli) and his co-worker Diedre (Hillary Anne Matthews) who has a crush on him.

Now that he has a staff, all he needs is a place to work with them. Eddie finds the some space in a nerd factory with a bunch of other people who also think they have the next best thing. Staff down, office found; now he needs to find someone to invest in his company. That will be harder than he thought. Besides finding an investor, he needs to come up with a theme for his show. What is he going to talk about? Then when he figures that out, what is he going to say?

It sounded like a good idea when he decided to start a podcast, now he is not so sure. One of the hardest parts about the change is that he gets to spend less time with his family. Ronni is a busy lawyer and she has let Alex care of the kids. Now that he is working on his own, he has less time to do that. She is going to have to pick up some of the slack and she is not the best at this mothering thing. Their son Ben marches to the beat of his own drum and he is OK with that. For example on the season premiere, he decides to a magic trick for the school talent show. Sorry, but magic is rarely cool, can he change his classes opinion on that? Soraya is your typical second child who has seen it all, yet she has barely been on the planet. All in all, this cast have such great chemistry together, you would think they are a real family. Actually, all of the actors on this show play off of each other so well, you would think that have been working together for ages. You can tell they all have a genuine love for their costars.

That is just one of the many reasons for you to fall in love with this show. Actually, everything about it makes you fall in love with it. It has so much heart and humor, that it will make your hump days brighter.

Talking about bright, Elisha Henig’s future is so bright he needs to wear shades. To read my interview with him, click here!

American Idol has lost its magic, while Deception is full of it!
March 11th, 2018 under ABC, American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]


American Idol is back, but over on ABC. Except for the three new judges, it is the same old American Idol we knew on Fox. Although, they found a way to suck all of the life out of the once beloved show. I watched the 2-hour season premiere without commercials and it felt like it went on for 4 hours.

Katy Perry screams desperation. Look at me and my crazy wacky outfit. Lionel Richie is a legend, but does not have the energy and charm that other Motown stars like Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder or Little Richard have. Then there is Luke Bryan, I like him but he is flat. They are actually all flat. When they give critiques, they are just mean. When Simon gave them advice, it was mean, but you knew they needed to hear it. It made them better performers. These guys are just so blah. It is all so lackluster.

What about the auditions? First off, they lied about not showing bad auditions with crazy people. There a few on tonight’s episode. When it comes to the rest, they are trying to be like The Voice. Instead of going for the next pretty Carrie Underwood, they are looking for another quirky Clay Aiken. As in someone who is not the perfect rock star, but someone a lot more awkward.

When it comes to the actual auditions, I honestly did not know any of the songs. I guess ABC does not want to pay for songs we have heard of. But that is not the only problem. At one point, a 19-year-old boy comes in and says he has crush on Perry. Then it is revealed he has never been kissed, and she goes up to him and forces a kiss on him. He screws up the audition and then the bitch didn’t even send him to Hollywood. WTF? Is this new Idol? Count me out.

On a positive note, there is a lot less Ryan Seacrest.

In summary, ABC has sterilized American Idol. Unless they find a way to give it some pizazz, it will be the costliest mistake since NBC hired Megyn Kelly.

Then at 10p, it is time for some Deception. The show is magical and not just because the lead is an illusionist!

Cameron Black (Jack Cutmore-Scott) is one of the greatest illusionists of our time, until his world comes crashing down. His twin brother, that no one knew about is arrested for murdering a woman. Now that everyone knows their secret, no one wants anything to do with him.

One day while he is watching the news, he sees a story about a plane that has gone missing from a locked hangar in front of several federal agents. He knows it was a trick, so he goes to show the FBI how it has been done. He somehow finagles his way into the case and now he is working on solving the crime with Special Agent Kay Daniels (Ilfenesh Hadera). She cannot stand him, but she realizes he might be able to help her.

Together the two of them, and his team of illusionists Dina (Lenora Crichlow), Jordan (Justin Chon) and Gunter (Vinnie Jones) will work together to catch the very bad guys with their tricks.

Each week, they will literally work their magic to put criminals behind bars as Cameron tries to get his brother out prison. Which makes this a procedural with a nice twist.

What makes Deception so special is its charm. You cannot help but to fall in love it before you say ta-dah.

A second season is just what The Good Doctor ordered
March 7th, 2018 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]


ABC has had a lot of misses this year, and there are even more coming up in the next few weeks. But they do have one huge hit on their hands and that is The Good Doctor. Even though the show was quick to get a full season pickup, it took a while for them to get news of a second season renewal. But that all changed today because the #1 new drama finally got word they will be back next season. You do not have to be a brain surgeon to know that this decision was a no brainer.

Now if only the Emmys would realize that is a no brainer for them to nominate Freddie Highmore for his role as Dr Shaun Murphy. He is absolutely brilliant in it and needs to be recognized for his great acting on the show.

David Shore, the man who gave us House, also gave us this show. Last week, I was reminded how much I miss the former and I am so grateful we have to former to fill that void.

Now if only ABC would have announced that they also picked up Kevin (Probably) Saves the World for a second season today, everything would be golden between us.
